Raìna, Cantina Aperta, May 25, 2014

This year for Cantina Aperta (Open Winery Day) we decided to go check out this new innovative winery in Montefalco. 

road to Raìna

Since we were thinking about adding Francesco’s wines to our inventory we wanted to see the behind the scenes action at the winery.

They had just moved everything out of the main winemaking room to do some painting, so everything was kind of random that day, but no worries.

The Raìna winery choose to do something different than the usual Cantina Aperta and called their event Gallina Aperta (free-range chicken). 

attention to being green, 

we like that!

Galina Aperta was a huge success. Basically it was a by reservation only, limited to 100 people, BBQ of chicken of course, panzanella and wine. Francesco is an excellent cook, not everyone can make great BBQ.
There was a DJ, fun people and a beautiful day, until the storm rolled in around 4 ish…..

Raìna’s wines are now available at Vinosofia.
